Alicia & Ashford in Covington, KY

The Bride Alicia Colvard, 29, an industrial engineer The Groom Ashford Hayles, 29, a patent examiner The Date April 18 Ashford suggested taking a romantic walk down to the beach with some wine to listen to the waves coming in, so the two set off for the shore. As soon as they were settled, Ashford popped the question to a shocked Alicia. “It was very surreal,” she says. “It was something I knew would happen eventually, but once it did, it was like, ‘Okay, it’s really happening!’” The pair planned a colorful wedding with a vibrant orange-and-yellow color palette for about a year-and-a-half later at the Drees Pavilion at Devou Memorial Overlook.
